Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The globe represents the international mission. The globe showing Indochina is a reference to the historical locations where the unit was stationed during World War II. The eagle is symbolic of the United States and is in flight to portray speed in delivering materiel and services to the customer. The key in the eagle's talons represents logistics, the figurative "key" to the "storehouse" to which the unit provides its foreign customers access.
